100 Painted Buntings...

The banding doldrums continue with only 9 new birds and 8 recaptures of 6 different species.  We banded our 100th Painted Bunting of the fall season today!  We also recaptured a Northern Mockingbird that was banded last fall on 08/28/13 as a hatch year.

I am watching a cold front that is moving across the U.S. from the west.  If it makes it all the way to South Carolina, it should bring us some birds by Monday or Tuesday.  We could use a change of pace!
